Dear Friends and Neighbors,

thank you so much for your interest in my handmade face masks.

At this point I am still producing masks for donation to local hospitals, which is my priority.

However, I learned from the many emails I got that there is also a real need in the community. So,

I donate at least one mask for every mask I sell.

This will help me offset the rent for my closed business in Potomac Village.

About the Masks:

My mask design was developed by me in cooperation with local ER doctors and nurses. The pattern and a video tutorial are available for free below if you want to make some.
They have strings, not elastics, which I find more comfortable (though I can also make them with elastics for you, even both).

The material is a double layer of medium weight, dense cotton. Pre-washed.
The masks are machine washable, best in a small sweater net.
Do not dry them in a dryer.

The cost to you is $25 per mask, which includes sponsoring another, and I will try my very best to get them ready for you ASAP.

You can pay by PayPal HERE or with cash or check at pick-up.
Please send me an email to specify male/female/adult/child at

I will let you know when your order is ready for pick-up from the mailbox of my house, or I deliver in the Bethesda/Potomac/Rockville/Chevy Chase are.

Shipping the masks is an additional $5.

Thank you so much for your kind words and interest.

Be well,

Anja Caldwell


Below are two online tutorials on how to sew your own masks.

One for a sewing machine, the other by hand.
